The valuing of a world where people can share opinions without having to care if they hurt or offend someone; a world where the empowerment and protection of marginalized people is less important than one person’s right to make a Facebook post.Consider this: if your voice has to be shut down by an individual person, it is because society deemed your voice worthy of listening to in the first place.
Overheard at Carnegie Mellon is not the federal government. The legal right to share an opinion is equally as valid as the right to ignore it or shut it down. We should, after all, try our best to be open-minded.He argued that these racial preferences may or may not be racist, but that it depends on the person, as “the reasons for an individual’s [race-based] sexual preferences are as diverse as the communities they make up.” While it is true that there are as many motivations behind personal inclinations as there are people, it is wrong to claim that racial preferences are not inherently racist.This is not to say that anyone in an interracial relationship is viewing their partner through a racist lens.He writes that comments explaining that racial preferences are a product of and contribute to systematic bias and thus are part of systemic racism “oversimplify the issue, assume the thoughts of others, [and] provide the same destructive type of thinking as the mentioned so-called systematic racism.” In no way do I believe that just pointing out the racism in racial preferences will end racism or change anyone’s internal thoughts.But sharing a racist thought or opinion in a public forum with the expectation people will respect your “right” to share that thought doesn’t engender discussion or spark debate — all it does is reinforce the systemic racism that probably caused the thought in the first place. The human brain is very bad at conceptualizing really large numbers.
But you can probably say that Granny Smith apples are sourer, that gala apples are sweeter, and that red delicious apples taste like dust and regret.
Jones is walking near the bar and appears to be heading out of the hotel.
In the video, he’s asked to deliver a special message for the recent engagement or wedding of a couple who seem to be Cowboys fans.
Jones looks directly into the camera and says, “Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding. Even though the video was shot four years ago, we’re told the fan recently shared it with his group of friends because he thought the current temperature of race in the NFL and the country made Jones’ comments relevant. It was sent to The Blast because the individuals involved thought it was important for NFL fans to see.
Now, you know he’s with a black girl tonight, don’t you? The source we spoke with said, “F**k Jerry Jones.” Jones has garnered criticism recently after announcing players on the Cowboys would be benched if they refused to stand for the National Anthem, saying “We cannot in the NFL, in any way, give the implication that we are in any way disrespecting the flag.” We have reached out to Jones and the NFL — so far, no comment.
Well, probably that they’re all fruits, that most of them have stems, and that they pretty much all have seeds. Aside from the obvious answer (they taste like apples), it’s difficult to really describe what each apple is like.
